It's Already Started
Oh dear, so let's see... Who would have the MOST to gain by spreading Palin rumors like a farmer spreading cow dung on a corn field??
When asked to choose among some of the GOP’s top names for their choice for the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, 64% say Palin. The next closest contenders are two former governors and unsuccessful challengers for the presidential nomination this year — Mike Huckabee of Arkansas with 12% support and Mitt Romney of Massachusetts with 11%.
Three other sitting governors – Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Charlie Crist of Florida and Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota – all pull low single-digit support.
For the howler's money, it's moles deep in the McCain campaign from either Mutable Mitt or The Singing Huckster. Both are just sleazy enough...
Update: Washington Whisper observes that die-hard conservatives are taking attacks on Palin very, very personally. Not a good thing for someone with Iowa and New Hampshire ambitions in '12.
